Check the schedules and all the information related to the Japanese Grand Prix that begins to take place at dawn on Friday at the Suzuka circuit. Max Verstappen has his second chance to become world champion again.
Things did not go well for Max Verstappen in Singapore, but his lead in the drivers’ championship is so wide that in Japan will once again have the opportunity to become Formula 1 world champion for the second time in a row.
The Dutch pilot knows that it is a matter of time, but wants to achieve it at Honda’s house to bring joy to Red Bull’s engine supplier who, although officially leaving Formula 1 in 2021, remains a crucial part of the success of the Anglo-Austrian formation.
On this occasion, Max Verstappen has it much easier, although Ferrari seems to have regained its good form moment after a fateful month of September. In any case, the Italians already consider the World Cup lost and only aspire to fatten their loot of victories and partially reestablish their lost honor.
What time is Formula 1 at Suzuka
Any Asian race that does not take place at night means very untimely schedules in Europe and America. Therefore, we have to get up early or stay up late to witness a Japanese Grand Prix that will begin this next morning with the dispute of the two free practice sessions on Friday.
If the weather permits, both will have the usual duration of 60 minutes and will start at 5 and 8 in the morning in mainland Spain respectively. In the following table you can see the schedules for Spain and some Latin American cities:

Alonso, Sainz and Perez at Suzuka
The three Spanish-speaking drivers on the Formula 1 grid face the 18th Grand Prix of the 2022 calendar with the need to meet certain objectives.
Fernando Alonso has to end his streak of retirements after failing to see the checkered flag in Monza and Singapore. The Alpine rider had chained 10 consecutive races in the points, but now the breakdowns are chasing him.
Carlos Sainz He has added a couple of podiums in recent races, but Ferrari’s poor performance has added problems to find rhythm in his car, so in Suzuka his number 1 objective will be to rediscover his best version.
Finally, Czech Perez He arrives at a good moment in Suzuka after the victory in Singapore. For the Mexican, the main objective is to hunt down Charles Leclerc in second place in the championship, since he is only 2 points behind him.
This is the circuit: Suzuka
Suzuka is, for many, the best circuit in the world. Fast in general lines, it has numerous curves in which the line between excellence and disaster is very small. And, from a technical point of view, aerodynamic efficiency plays a fundamental role as numerous fast corners are combined with long straight sections where top speed is important.
The high speeds and the large amount of lateral load that the fast and long corners generate on the tires make this circuit one of the most demanding with them. Not surprisingly, Pirelli is used to designating the hardest compounds in the range for this Grand Prix, despite the fact that the temperatures are not extreme, far from it.
All this, along with the numerous slopes along the track and the great love of the Japanese for racing, make this one of the great moments of the year, both for the members of the teams, as well as for the fans and the press.
The calendar of the Formula 1 World Championship
The 2022 season was intended to become the longest in history hosting 23 Formula 1 Grand Prix, although after the cancellation of the Russian Grand Prix it was not yet clear if this wish would be fulfilled. In the end it will not be like that and, once again, the championship will remain in 22 events.
Regardless of that, this year’s calendar has brought back classic events that were absent during the pandemic. We talk about racing Australia, Canada, Singapore and Japan. The first was already played during the month of April and the second did the same in June. The Asians have had to wait until October to certify their return.
OFFICIAL SCHEDULE FOR THE 2022 FORMULA 1 SEASON
The drivers and teams of the Formula 1 World Championship
But without a doubt the great protagonists of the 2022 Formula 1 Championship, as every year, are the participants: 10 teams and 20 drivers willing to complete the longest season in history touring four continents and 21 countries.
On this year’s grid we have three world champions, Lewis Hamilton, Fernando Alonso and Sebastian Vettel, as well as a rookie driver: the Chinese Guanyu Zhou, who forms a couple with Valtteri Bottas at Alfa Romeo. We also see the return of Alexander Albon with Williams and Kevin Magnussen with Haas.
One more season, Spain is represented by Fernando Alonso and Carlos Sainz, both framed in the same team as in 2021. The Spaniard defends the colors of Alpine and is in charge of executing THE PLAN to the best of his ability, which, however, does not include fighting for the title or for victories.
On the other hand, the man from Madrid could reach that point, as Ferrari has improved even more this year and already aspires to important things with Red Bull and Mercedes as main opponents. can Carlos Sainz beat again a very fast Charles Leclerc?
